Chemical Compartmentalization

Different chemical markers are unevenly distributed within the cerebellar cortex in adulthood or transiently during specific developmental phases. These chemical differences clearly challenge the idea of a uniform organization of the cerebellar cortex, and their correlation with functional diversities of the different cerebellar lobules might provide useful information to help clarify the cerebellar function. These many chemical markers include glycolipids as well as proteins. In the adult, these markers are mainly organized in seven sagittal bands of different intensities. In the anteroposterior dimension, chemical patterning of a lower number of markers has been shown. Karl Herrup and Barbara Kuemerle attempted to summarize the available data in a three-dimensional grid ofthe cerebellar cortex (Fig. 9).
